New England's population stood at 14,270,000 in July of 2006, a gain of 347,000 residents since 2000. This gain of 2.5 percent is less than half that of the nation as a whole and lags far behind the fast growing South and West. The modest overall population gain in New England masks sharply contrasting demographic trends within the region.
